Maybelline Lash Sensational Review and waterproof test

After using up the last of my They're Real samples which I've been using for the past year, I finally bit the bullet and bought a new mascara. Since my beloved L'Oreal Telescopic Waterproof has been discontinued, I turned to Maybelline. The mascara that caught my eye was the Lash Sensational, as I remembered hearing good things about it (something about it being a dupe for the Benefit Roller Lash I think?). Now I'm not a fan of the Roller Lash because it doesn't hold a curl on me at all, but I thought I would give the waterproof version of the Maybelline a go- and while I was at it, I tested how waterproof it really is!

I apologize for the extreme close up but here's a picture of my lashes after I first put on the mascara. It doesn't give tons of volume, but it does seperate the lashes nicely and looks quite natural. I'm definitely a length over volume girl so it works for me. I think I will like it even more once it has dried out a little, but so far so good.

The second picture was taken after I went to the pool, sat outside in 37 degrees for three hours and then had a shower and washed my hair. The mascara didn't budge at all! I was extremely impressed, especially because I rubbed my eyes a few times too because I forgot that I was wearing mascara. My lashes did drop a little and weren't as curled but I expect that after a shower, and was actually quite impressed with how well this mascara held the curl.

Overall, I really liked this mascara and will definitely continue using it, especially now that I know how well it lasts. I think I've found my graduation mascara...
